The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau (VACB) should not be used as a tool to retaliate against political or personal enemies, Home Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan said here on Monday.

“To ensure that actions are not taken against innocent people, the authenticity of complaints should be cross-checked. To eliminate a common but wrong notion about the VACB that it is an agency to trap the enemies, the functioning of VACB should be popularised,” the Home Minister said.

He was launching the toll-free number and website for the public to register complaints with the VACB.

Public can lodge complaints through the toll-free number: 8592 900 900 or through the website from anywhere in the state. The complaints will be forwarded to the respective units of the VACB.

VACB director Mahesh Kumar Singla delivered the welcome note. DGP K S Balasubramanian delivered the keynote address.
